Optimising of building orientation and percentage of glazing

The optimal percentage of glazing on any facade of any building is affected by five factors: buidling usage patterns, heating demand, cooling demand, glazing type, and the artificial lighting demand. Based on building orientation, the building use, the glazing type, and the efficiency of the heating and cooling systems for a given building the optimal percentage of glazing will vary. Maven Sustainability will produce a thermal energy model of a building in order to determine the optimal orientation of the building and to determine the optimal percentage of glazing. Please see Royal Mail case study.
